Which First for your Phoenix Home Remodeling Project: Bathroom or Kitchen?
Anytime a home remodeling project is considered, it sparks the debate of which to do first, bathroom remodel or kitchen remodel? It is estimated that homeowners will spend $310 billion on remodeling their homes this year.
More and more people are spending money on remodeling their homes. Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies estimates that spending on remodeling will climb 9% percent this year to $310 billion, bringing home remodeling close to the 2006 peak of $327 billion. So the question of bathroom remodeling or kitchen remodeling first is an important one. Let's examine both misconceptions in more detail below.
Misconception #1 - bathroom remodels are less expensive than kitchen remodels.
Truth: People think smaller space equals less materials and therefore less cost. Depending on your bathroom remodeling ideas, this might or might not be true. And based on the list of materials needed you have to make decisions on materials and labor costs associated with it. Bathroom remodeling costs will often rival minor or in some cases even major kitchen remodeling projects depending on the scope of work.
A bathroom remodeling estimate often has as many or more aspects and parts to it as a kitchen remodeling cost estimate. Just as in a kitchen remodel cost estimate, a bathroom remodeling estimate shares cabinets, counters, floors, tile and hardware. But what about toilets, bath tubs, grab bars, mirrors, shower & shower door, sink & tub/shower faucets?
